SWhat's Your Latest Acquisition?


20 posts

 I just picked this up at a local shop that deals mostly with gamers and the like. They recently moved locations and I was downtown with some time to kill, so I went in. I knew they had some Warhammer kits, but I didn't know the had mainstream kits. They also have some Tamiya paint and some other Tamiya modelling paraphernalia.

A successful weekend.


First I found a Revell 1/72 Tornado GR1 in a charity shop. After pondering for a few seconds I decided to donate £3.99 to BHF as a thank you - everyone wins!


Then down to the market where I liberated a couple of pre-owned kits - Airfix 1/72 Roland C.II & Albatros DV.

I simply couldn't resist the simple but very attractive late 80's 'Aces' boxart. The plastic may not be state of the art but they are still very buildable subjects (if I ever get around to them!).


Didn't even make it to the Hobby Shop. Might have to exchange peenies for paint later in the week to keep everyone happy.

Italeri 1/35 M110A1 Howitzer. 


Been after one for a while but they rarely show up as they don't have the street cred of the Tiger, Sherman, Abrams etc and I believe only Italeri have dipped their toes in the family so far. 

Doubly happy that it's a short barrel version as the A1 only had one box release many moons ago. The wishlist never gets any shorter though as I'm also after a Vietnam era M110(sans suffix)...one day...
